Community Renewal of Pottawatomie County is a non-profit organization based in Shawnee, OK dedicated to helping neighbors restore their communities through intentional relationships.
We are an independent replication of the pioneering work of Community Renewal International in Shreveport, LA.

Research shows that building healthy, connected neighborhoods has long-term positive impact on issues like education and crime rates as well as physical health, and we want those outcomes for our county.
